Even before the coronavirus outbreak took over daily lives around the globe, the nine-year old conflict had largely fallen off the world’s collective radars. But as the war enters its tenth year, the conflict that gave rise to the Islamic State group and that triggered the worst humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century continues to create new tragedies with an outsized impact on global politics.
